Curves offered a free Weight Management Class which I "skeptically" attended. My Curves has since closed, I have continued the plan (slightly modified) and have lost 60 lbs. since May. This plan changed my whole way of eating. I eat more and healthier. You eat 3 meals and 2 snacks.
There are 2 plans offered in their book. We followed the low carb, high protein plan. I also joined a different gym after they closed and continue to keep a food journal.

There is no "secret" to losing weight with SP. SP isn't a diet, it's a weight management program which gives you the information and the tools you need to change the way you eat, cook and exercise, while supporting you every step of the way. I found SP purely by chance, through a reference in a magazine article. I've lost 17 lbs. so far and plan to lose at least another 13, then learn to maintain that weight loss for the rest of my life. 88
My Weight Management doctor, told me to have whatever it is I'm craving. (1) Figure out what it is that you're really craving to keep from eating the whole house trying to satisfy it. (2) Have it.. just ONE BITE! (3) Drink a glass, or bottle, of water after your ONE BITE.
Obviously, if the ONE BITE rule is abused, it may affect your weight management results.
Weight loss is like love.. You can go on with someone. But it is not easy. It is like a rose that can thorn you with it thorns. There are failures and of course a success will also be there. I will be moving on in the day if I will stare someone who did motivate me to be fit and healthy. That someone is my son.
I am also in the program that I can really say "my weight loss weapon"
